The University of New Orleans Transportation Institute is currently supporting Louisiana’s Recreational Trails Program (under the State of Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism, Office of State Parks) in developing a strategic plan to guide program implementation over the next ten years, in alignment with guidance from the FHWA and the Louisiana Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan.
As part of this research, we want to hear from trail users of all kinds across the state about how Louisianans are using trail facilities of ALL kinds, from nature trails to ATV trails to urban walking/bicycling trails to paddle trails on our bayous and beyond, for any purpose, and tell us what you’d like to see prioritized for funding and trail management over the next ten years.
Please consider taking 5-10 minutes to help us better understand your interests and needs, and please feel free to share this survey with your friends, family, and anyone else you know who supports great places for Louisianans to walk, bike, ride, paddle, train, learn, relax, and play!
If you represent or are associated with a club, organization, or social group that uses Louisiana Recreational Trails and can help us distribute this survey to your membership/constituency/circle, we’d be especially grateful for your support in disseminating this brief survey.
